#Review #Dark #TwinsieForTheDayDeb= Keeping Lily by Izzy Sweet, Sean Moriarty

Keeping Lily

My husband traded me away to save his own life…
And now I belong to the devil.
One night and everything in my life changed. Two words and my world turned dark.
“Take her”.
Owing the most ruthless crime lord in Garden City five million dollars, my husband chose to trade me and my children away to save himself.
I was on the cusp of freedom, so close to divorcing that scumbag I was married to.
Now I’m enslaved to a man who is obsessed with me. A man so wicked and beautiful, they call him Lucifer.
So alluring, he makes the angels weep with envy. He’s so powerful, I can’t stop myself from bending to his will.
He’s determined to master me, and he won’t rest until I give him all.
He wants my light, and he wants my dark.
He wants my body, and he wants my heart.
But most of all, he wants the one thing I can’t give him. The one thing I can’t bear to part with…

Review by Deb

GOD, THIS REALLY IS A GOOD STORY
5 Stars

So, this book was recommended to me by my friend Kathryn. Her review says to put your brain in your back pocket for this one and now I know why. It’s an unconventional kind of connection. He’s not a bad guy, at least not to Lily and her kids, but cross him or hurt someone he loves and he becomes the monster you’ve always feared. I guess I could see this really happening, but it would fear and far between I’m afraid. Good thing it’s a book and not real life.

Lily and her children are traded to a sort of mobster (Lucifer) by her asshole husband for debts he incurred through said mobster. Once Lucifer lays eyes on Lily he knows he must have her. He must possess her. And he must make her completely his. Lily is not so sure, but coming off a yearlong celibacy, she’s immediately ignited by his presence. Lucifer will do whatever it takes to earn her trust and make her understand that she’s all he’s ever wanted or needed. The kids ended up being a bonus for him as they are so damn cute and don’t ever mention their jerkface father once.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a very quick read and had plenty of highs and lows to keep me turning pages in record time. I literally read it from cover to cover in one day. The characters are enjoyable and demanding. The dialogue flowed well and the pacing was rather swift. There was a good amount of tension and suspense that lead to an unbelievable conclusion. I loved it!

 

 

#REVIEW – In The Moment: Part Two (An Erotic Menage Romance Short Story) (Moments Book 2) by Rachael Orman

Ace has been ignoring Adam. Adam is determined to force him to show his hand by hitting on Alicia, the bartender Ace can’t keep his eyes off. When Ace finds out Adam is interested in Alicia on his own, he is ever the more determined to make their threesome work.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Once again, we find Ace, Adam and Alicia together. Adam and Ace are trying to pursue Alicia into spending a night with them but I don’t think it’ll just be a one time thing.

Sparks fly and Alicia eventually agrees. All thanks to Adam and his swooniness.

But of course, Ace is still closed off about making his sexuality known, so he keeps Adam a secret. Unfortunately for them, I don’t think that will stay a secret for long.

These books only get hotter and hotter. I enjoy the three of them together and can’t wait to see how they work through some hopefully minor issues.

#REVIEW – In The Moment: Part One (An Erotic Menage Romance Short Story) (Moments Book 1)

Alicia knows Ace as the hard, tattooed biker who frequents the bar she works at. So when she finds him locked in a compromising position with another man, she is shocked to discover he’s not who she thought he was.

Brushing off all Ace’s behavior has become second nature, until he makes advances toward her. Alicia gives in, not knowing where her desires will take her.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

So yeah, this one was fun.

Ace is a biker and has to keep up that biker ruse but secretly, he’s all about Adam and then some. Their scenes together were explosive hot. And then comes Alicia. Adam has a plan and wants them both together. Not sure if Adam or Alicia will go for it but I’m excited to find out.

Alicia is a bartender at the bar that Ace frequents a lot. Their chemistry is explosive.

And then there is Adam. Oh Adam. I’m excited to see what more will happen in this hot little short series. If you want a quick read, these are for you. Definitely kept me turning my pages.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

More twists and turns for our favorite kidnapped couple.  More horror is dropped at their feet.  More questions and now a new faceless man who is calling the shot as well!!???  HRMM so much is going on but our two are still dedicated to loving each other and trying to figure out how to kill all these people PLUS escape. #MurderIsNotCool

We still hate Valerie, Raoul and the rest of the killer crew but the new person in the crowd has me wondering who it could be….who is from Ivy and maybe Noah’s past that is now making their presence knows in the couple’s torture.  The man who is…..over Valerie in this organization??  The man who is …helping them???  NO WAY!!  What is going on!  #NeededADrink  #WTFMomentHappened

This book our couple spends a lot of time apart but still trying to figure out what is happening while dealing with the constant and chronic mind-fuckery that is happening to them compliments of their kidnappers.  #LawdIsNoahAnAlphaAlpha  #DudeCanTeachAClass  #YUMMMMM

This book is a slow and methodical set up for “The Final Act”.  I have no clue if that means final book, final abuse or final chance for Valerie to walk away before Noah gets loose.  Either way, I am tuning in for more Ivy and Noah.

Master Of My Mind (The Doms of Genesis #3)

The Biggest Club Genesis Book Yet!
After the shocking death of my Master left me stunned, the revenge his ex-wife and daughter sought was almost as devastating. Seeking refuge at Club Genesis, my one safe haven, I returned to heal and get back on my own two feet.
But I soon learned that fate had other plans for Leagh Bennett.
Tony Delvaggio, the panty-melting sadist and resident shrink of Genesis, took me under his wing. Both frightened by his intensity and secretly thrilled by his unwavering attention, I tried to hide my past and barricade my soul from him. But Tony coaxed my thoughts with his deep voice and seduced my body with his rough hands. Before long, he pried open my heart as well. But when it became clear that someone meant to kill me, I came to a terrifying conclusion: I would have to put my complete trust and submission in the Master of my mind or die…

Review by Jordan

I honestly had no clue where this story was going in the beginning. The funeral threw me for a loop. From the previous books in the series, I assumed George and Leagh would always be together. The twists, turns, and mind games throughout this story kept me hooked. Tony was there at every turn to comfort and support Leagh. Their story was always a twisted mind game, which is what led them to their true matches. The characters continue to pull me and I am always anxious for the next chapter in the series.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

GAH!!! *Clapping* this book made my heart so happy.  The angst, the secrets, the chemistry, the EVERYTHING……seriously loved it.

I loved how we got to see more of Ty, Uncle Quint and the twins but what made my heart so happy was getting to meet and know the other brothers in the series.  Dash, serious swooning was happening.  Damien and Julien getting possessive over their time with our girl Ariel was awesome too.

There were a few stolen kisses and a lot of coulda happened kisses but mainly our guys are giving our girl time to get to know them.  They are all pushing for time with her and time to learn about her, but they are granting her time.  She has no clue about what she is or what is expected of female witches so they guys are going to help her along the way.

We learned some new things about Ariel’s father and I gotta admit he seems like trouble for our girl.  Chucky is still a pain in the a$$ for Ariel.  We learn the true depths the guys will take to protect and avenge any harm done to Ariel…ruthless is a light term to use is all I gotta say.  Mr. Cole still makes my heart happy for Ariel.  He is the true father figure for her and he will do anything and everything to protect her as such.

Blood Magic is the next book in the series and its shaping up to be a major showdown between the guys, Ariel and her biological daddy…yikes…the title of Blood Magic tells you some seriously bad things are doing to happen!!!

#review #shifter – Leap of the Lion (The Wild Hunt Legacy #4) by Cherise Sinclair

Leap of the Lion (The Wild Hunt Legacy, #4)

She shifts for the first time on the day of her escape.

After a decade of captivity, Darcy MacCormac escapes the corrupt, clandestine organization called the Scythe, leaving family and friends behind. She must find a way to rescue them. Discovered by other shifters, the brand-new cougar gets two mentors. Blademage Gawain is an easy-going blacksmith with a steel-hard core. His brother Owen is a deadly warrior. Grumpy. Rude. And he doesn’t like her.

They aren’t the mates she’d dreamed of—they’re more.

Powerful, dominating Owen protects the clan—especially the weak—and the only remnant of an abused childhood is his avoidance of females. Now he has to mentor one? Although Gawain soon falls for the dauntless little cat, Owen knows better than to lose his head. But Darcy has a gift for repairing everything…including damaged hearts.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh Cherise!!  Do I love your books!! I am not sure if I love the Shadowlands or the Hunt series better????

This story is about Darcy who has been kept for years.  She is after her family to save them when she meets her future mates.  Gawain and Owen could not be any more alike than the sun and the moon, oil and water.  These two are brothers but that is about it for likeness.  Whereas Owen is a total douche bag to women, Gawain is not.  Now we know why Owen is the way he is BUT yeah still such a dick.  However, for a big a jerk he is, he would still go out of his way to help another person, so I guess he does have a bit of a good heart 😊   The brother are assigned to help Darcey but soon fall fast and heard for this little shifter.

The story is a great one with twist and turns and us wondering Darcy is going to be able to make the lifelong mate commitment to the brothers that happens when they are bonded.

Authors often say their characters argue with them. Unfortunately, since Cherise Sinclair’s heroes are Doms, she never, ever wins.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, devastating Dominants, and absolutely sizzling sex. And did I mention the BDSM? Her awards include a National Leather Award, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, and Best Author of the Year from the Goodreads BDSM group.

Fledglings having flown the nest, Cherise, her beloved husband, and one fussy feline live in the Pacific Northwest where nothing is cozier than a rainy day spent writing.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

One of the things I love about this author is her dark humor…her sarcasm is right up there with mine so I get her totally.  Another thing I love about her books are the way she writes the perfect men to complement our heroine.  Her heroines are always smart, sassy,  and a whole lot badassy!!

This book starts with Low missing her father.  She is going to drown her sorrows with Jack Daniels and Christmas movies when 3 hotties move in next door.  Ez is the sweet boy next door.  Tobi is the hot dominant and Jasper is the flirty one of the group.

The guys are all fawning over our girl and she is doing everything in her power to ignore them even if her libido is not on board with it.  The guys push Low and soon she is a part of their holiday charity show.  This forces her to spend more and more time with the guys and start to grow more and more feelings for them.

We see Low pushing her feelings for the guys away because of her abandonment fears but when she must face everything she has her trusty best friend Sara there to smack her into facing what is really happening.  Everyone needs a best friend like Sara!

I loved loved loved the story.  The guys all have a special place in my heart just like Low’s.

K.B. Ladnier is from a small city in Southern Mississippi. She has one daughter and three cats who she claims are stealing her soul in only tiny doses so she won’t notice.

She hates the beach yet lives only ten minutes away from it and daydreams of mountains and snow. She is married to a hot nerd and loves him dearly even though he hordes cookies and occasionally hides her prosthetic leg from her when she’s mad, so he can get a quick escape. She plans to write as long as people continue loving what she does, otherwise she’s going to say screw it and do her second dream of owning a coffee shop. Though, she may still do both.

synopsis

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He refuses to fall in love.

He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.

Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.

Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

She is lost.

Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.

King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.

Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

Review by Jordan

 

What a wild ride! I’m the search to find these missing girls, Jay finds a man and herself. Both Jay and Angel are so strong headed and stubborn that I was constantly waiting to see who would yield first. Their love seems to be one for the ages. Military and MC clashing together to become one group, one family. What started out for a search for Jay’s sister turned into a massive undertaking to try and take down an entire sex trafficking ring. I loved the story and the love that characters express towards one another. It was a beautiful story and I’m excited to read more of these characters.
